Oh, absolutely. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, whereas osteoarthritis as a result of wear and tear that happens as we use our joints and age. You can read more about the basics of RA here and over on our Osteoarthritis site, you can find information about the basics of that condition here.
Thanks FOR THE ANSWER, ITS BEEN A WHILE SINCE I've been on this websight.
Yes you can, i'm living proof! lol
Just having RA is bad enough seems like Osteo and RA are teaming up . And were the victims. I have been on Orincia for about 8 months now and it helps reduce the systems. Hope Dr's Discover a pill that will take care of many systems w/ no side affects
I know..it can't only be 1 problem by it's self it has to be several at once! Thats real good that the orencia is helping with some of your symtoms. Oh yes it would be wonderful if they could invent meds that don't have any side effects-but i don't think that will ever happen..not in this life time anyway, but it's nice to dream isn't it.
